SHENZHEN | AVIC Plaza | 245m | 804ft | 52 fl | Com








Skidmore, Owings & Merrill unveil their design for the Shenzhen tower

AVIC plaza stretches along a major artery of Shenzhen, bridging the old downtown and modern city center. In the center sits a retail podium, which is sited diagonally to encourage north-south movement across the plaza. Flanking the podium are two triangular plots: on the northeast plot sits a high-profile office tower, while on the southwest are more secluded apartment towers. The apartment towers connect at every third floor with two-storey public gardens and at the podium roof. Atop the retail podium is the signature tower, which will be an important landmark for the city, its twin vertical blades registering a dynamic profile on the skyline. The tower's verticality is enhanced by mullions, which are further accentuated by fritted glass extensions. These luminescent extensions provide shade the interior from direct sunlight while preserving views from the building of the rapidly growing city.

That part of Shennan Donglu will be really amazing with Shun Hing Square, Kingkei Finance Center Plaza and AVIC Plaza all so close to each other.

Wouldnt call it spectacular alotugh its works very well. But maybe a brighter facade than that in the renderings would do?

Chinese skyscraper architecture has really matured over the last decade. The designs are much less "out there" and more elegant and classy.

It looks incredible in the renderings... But I don't like the model render nearly so much...

@alexanderxu0707

You have to upload them to another server. SSC doesn't allow to upload pics directly as most Chinese forums do.

[img*]www.pic.jpg[/img] < without the *

Very slow and boring at first, but you'll get used to it quickly. I recomend you imageshack.us for a few pics (you don't even need to register) and photobucket.com to upload pics by groups of 1-20 pics. You need registration there, but it's free.
